    I am building my peacock's new pen and they are so pretty, so I want the ground to be pretty too. I planted some wild flowers and Honey Suckles but what else can I plant? Thanks

    I just planted a climbing Hydrangea to grow over my aviary. They grow very big and have beautiful white flowers. It looks very Victorian.

    I was gonna do something similar to a rose bush, I ordered 1 too many lilac bushes so I could put on in their pen. I will have to look for Hydrangea and Moonflowers does Wal-Mart or Home-Depot sell them? Hanging pots with flowers would look so pretty but they are so expensive here, they are around $30.00 so that is a little out of my budget.

    You can make your hanging pots out of buckets. I never look at the pot, I look whats in the pot.
